Once again, dementia has been in the news with a direct link to high blood pressure. Just earlier this week we talked about how pre-hypertension and high blood pressure are related to the onset of dementia. Today we’re learning that fluctuating blood pressure is also related to the onset of dementia.

Did you know that L-Arginine has been clinically shown to improve circulation throughout the body. By widening the arteries and increasing vasodilation, L-Arginine, a precursor to Nitric Oxide, can help to improve blood pressure.

The recent Japanese study showed that variations in daily blood pressure can lead directly to dementia:

“The present study demonstrated that an increased day-to-day blood pressure variation (measured at home) was significantly associated with the development of all-cause dementia, vascular dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease, regardless of average home blood pressure,” said lead study author Dr. Tomoyuki Ohara, of the Graduate School of Medical Sciences at Kyushu University in Fukuoka City.

Do you monitor your blood pressure daily at home?

If high blood pressure runs in your family, or dementia runs in your family, it’s wise to do whatever you can to improve your health NOW. Getting a home blood pressure monitor is a great way to stay on top of how your blood pressure fluctuates.

Monitoring what you eat, your stress levels, and your exercise routine and connecting those activities with what the blood pressure monitor says is a great way to understand what your body needs to remain healthy and strong.

Dementia, much like heart disease, seems to be completely preventable. More and more research is showing just how heart disease and dementia are not only linked, but can be prevented with good health.

L-Arginine supplements, like our Cardio Juvenate Plus, can potentially help you win that battle against high blood pressure and dementia. Talk to your doctor about how L-Arginine has been clinically proven to lower blood pressure, and see if Cardio Juvenate Plus is the right fit for you!
